Holmes, 26, was drafted by the Vikings in the fourth round out of Ohio State in 2018. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $3.2 million deal that included a $731,396 signing bonus when Minnesota cut him loose in September of last year.
He caught on with the Saints and was promoted to their active roster back in October.
In 2021, Holmes appeared in eight games for New Orleans and recorded 14 tackles, two tackles for loss, and one pass defense.
